In the background of the State Comptroller’s Report on the tunnel threat during Operation Protective Edge, Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein implicitly criticized Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, former Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon and others for criticizing the State Comptroller: “I don’t think that State Comptroller Shapira is hasty or politically biased.”

“It is forbidden that these things (the excellent issues in the report) will come back again,” Edelstein stated.  “Unfortunately, the situation in the region is not the recipient of good news and we need to know that we do the maximum so the situation won’t come back.”
